Naming transparent-receivered airsoft guns

I think it'd be nice if we can brainstorm a couple names for these new airsoft guns with transparent receivers, something that clearly and concisely describe what they are. After all, clearsoft is a rather derogatory term here on ASC and does not fit with the fact that only a small (albeit significant) portion of the gun is clear.

I would suggest that ideally, the name should be suffixed with -soft. That seems to be the trend.

Conversely, we could just call them airsoft guns and recognize them as equal to completely "black" guns. But I doubt everyone agrees with that sentiment and this really boils down to a popularity contest.

I mean this to be a serious discussion. If your best suggestion is "crapsoft" or the likes, please conserve your wit for the Trash.

What about clearsoft. It is what it is.

If there is a stigma regarding that name, remove the stigma. Renaming a horse turd a road apple didn't work either. Everyone still knows what it is.
